The Social Skills Inventory (SSI), also known as the Self-Description Inventory, assesses basic social skills that underlie social competence. It evaluates verbal and non-verbal communication skills and identifies strengths and weaknesses. The instrument is useful in individual and couples counseling, management and leadership training, and health psychology.
Clients respond to items using a five-point scale, indicating the extent to which the description of the item applies to them. Scores are reported for each of the scales and a combined score is given to indicate global social intelligence.
